“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


I’d like to grasp you with my white-knuckled fingers in
A death grip like no other, and sink my
Teeth into your skin,
And never let you go—I’d like to bring you closer,
Closer,
I’d like to meld my tears with your pulsing blood,
And show you what it is to be
One body and soul—
All these things eat at me and suffocate me in a single,
Brain-scrambling desire, that I
Cannot escape,
For it’s you that has me attached by a wire, pulled in the direction
Of wherever you are
At any one time
And my arms are scarred by your fallacious bites, and my heart
Is just as frost-bitten,
While my blood races with the thought that it’s all
Beyond my control,
Oh!
Where has my sanity gone?
Well, you have that
Also.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

i hate it when i have something to comment, then it just decides to dissapear.....

O_O At first I thought, "Oh yeah, I knew Jade was that kind of girl! Wassup, girl" XD Then I thought, "Wait, what? She's a vampire?!" "Bite me too!" I love the imagery and the aggresive emotion in this. I will never look at you that same way from now on.... XD JK But yeah, this is great, pimp.

The imagery is AMAZING. I was drawn in like a moth to a fluorescent light. SERIOUSLY GOOD. I loved the ending as well, it was a perfect conclusion. Yet again, dear friend, AWESOME JOB!!! <3
